I use ntfs-3g as file system type , I'm wondering if CONFIG_NTFS_FS is still necessary ? Seem you could remove that.

Also does ntfs-3g have better performance than kernel ntfs driver ?

If you mean on Linux then you should say so. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Jun 10 '12 at 3:36

ntfs-3g is fuse based, so it should be absolutely ok to disable the kernel module you're asking about. Though, it's still unclear to me why one would want to do that.
